I actually like working on her.  So, it's not problem for me.

Speaking of work, Rick, did Correy run past you my idea for boosting sound to the internal speakers in the aft section of the boat?  It really is a safety issue not having audible sound aft of the crew's wash room with so many people aboard on event weekends.

Just a reminder that our next deck work day is Saturday, Feb. 7th. @ 9 AM

Please set aside some time that day to come out.  The more we have, the more we get put down.

If you don't want to work the deck, come out and help in some other way.

Please let me know if you are interested and can make it.

I'll be there.  I will help with the deck as well as hooking up a stereo amp to the 1MC speaker wire in the FWD ENG RM.

I'm out of town on 2/7, but I'm itching to get back down there!  The deck is looking better and better.

I do not mean to take up your topic, but i do not see starting another of this breif upday....

we faired the Winter Ice storm very well.   we have a minimal amount of down tree limbs and the parking lot looked like a Ice Skating rink.  but it is slowly tuning into water.   I hope everyone else faired as well.   See you all at the next work day.

Saturday is looking like it will be a beautiful day with a high near 70.  Supposed to be 60 deg. by arrival time.

Just a reminder...have only heard back from two that will be there, and two that won't be there.

Come on out.

2 bundles or decking have been delivered to the after deck.  We will need to sort them out, but this is not a big deal.   More will be delivered on Saturday.

I wish I could be there once again Mark, but architecture studio requires alot of time, not only do I have to build a 3-d model but then I have to do a 3-d drawing of it, and all the techincal drawings for it, so I have alot to do this weekend. Sorry, I really wish I could be there.

Saturday, March 7th is our Annual Spring Work Day.

Lots to do, including deck work.  I'll be there by 9 AM (don't have to wait for the wife to get ready this time as she won't be there).

We got a lot done last Saturday and need to post photos...thanks to Tim, Roger and Mark S. for the help.

So, please plan to come out on the 7th. 

As far as I know - lunch will be provided by the Foundation, so we need an RSVP please.

Thanks,

Mark

Damn skippy.  You get to work on a submarine with friends AND a free meal?  Wish the Batfish was closer for sure!

Well, once again school calls, I have to design a tower and then build it over the next three weeks so I cant make it this weekend. However depending on what happens I might be spending alot of time at the Batfish over my spring break.

The promise of a free meal doesn't seem to have much pull anymore.  Last year out spring work day had over 60 people.  So far this year I have about five...hopefully Rick has heard from others I haven't.

I might be able to make it actually, it depend on what my professor wants done over the weekend. If I can com I will probably just show up the day of, but dont get your hopes up, because they can cram alot into the weekends for us,  :buck2:
